What am I forgetting??!!

OK...leaving on Wednesday for the long ride to the west! Goin' Elk huntin!!

I "think" I have everything ready. But it's been a while since I have taken an out of state hunt and don't want to forget anything.

What are the items that you find yourself franticly searching to find at the last minute or turning around and going back home to get??

Permit, stamps, bone saw, gloves, rope, camera, knives (3+), deodorant, toothbrush, eye glasses, sling for rifle, sleeping bag, hunter orange hat/vest, ...

And these are just the things I remember forgetting and going back for/replacing.

What I forgot was my chainsaw. Makes getting firewood difficult. USDA fire regs require you to have a shovel and bucket if you build an open fire.

The most indespensible item is your lucky charm. I used a found penny.

Good luck

Don't forget the gun. That could be awkward.
